Airborne Athletics’ 2009 Volleyball Coach of the Year
Airborne Athletics is proud to announce Coach Troy Campbell from Marquette Catholic High School as the Airborne Athletics' 2009 Volleyball Coach of the Year. Coach Campbell was selected out of thousands of candidates that use the AirCAT volleyball machine across the nation.
Coach Troy Campbell and Marquette Catholic High School having been dominating Class A volleyball in Indiana for over half a decade. Since taking over the volleyball program in 2003, Troy Campbell has made winning the State Championship the standard. After being the State runner-up in 2003, Marquette Catholic High School has won six straight State Championships from 2004-2009. They are only the second team in Indiana Volleyball history to accomplish this feat.
Coach Campbell was named Indiana’s 2009 A Volleyball Coach of the Year. In his seven years of coaching at Marquette Catholic High School, he has accumulated a record of 232-40 and helped developed 29 All State Players.
Coach Campbell incorporates the AirCAT into his practices every season and has this to say about the AirCAT;
“Coaches may think that a piece of equipment as advanced as the AirCAT would only be for the large programs with a lot of kids, but they would be mistaken.
I believe it is a critical tool for small volleyball programs because it allows your coaching staff the flexibility to walk around and give the team or players direction. My coaching style revolves around a lot of one-on-one instruction and the AirCAT allows me to take kids aside without stopping the drill. At Marquette Catholic High School, where our program ranges from only 16 to 24 students for Varsity and JV, I have to make every repetition count in order to make efficient use of the time we have to prepare the team. We use the AirCAT for the many ball handling drills, as well as, attacking and scrimmage activities. The use of the AirCAT is only limited to your own imagination. Our coaches like the ease of use and accuracy it offers. Thanks AirCAT for assisting us in winning Indiana's 1A State Championship for 6 years running.”
